This programme is designed to encourage you to consider the practical processes, ideological dynamics and theoretical dimensions involved in the interface of diplomacy/foreign policy and religion. You will develop analytical skills in the field of religious studies and international relations and be encouraged to engage in cross-disciplinary research, notably with the MA dissertation.
The programme is especially relevant if you are thinking about or currently working in diplomacy, international NGOs, and international policy and politics. Core modules are supported by selected Politics modules. You will take five taught modules each assessed by a 5,000 word essay.
Distinguished practitioners with experience in the field contribute to elements of the programme. We may organise student trips, for example to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office in London.
You will study a range of modules as part of your course, some examples of which are listed below.
Information contained on the website with respect to modules is correct at the time of publication, but changes may be necessary, for example as a result of student feedback, Professional Statutory and Regulatory Bodies' (PSRB) requirements, staff changes, and new research.
